My T-Bird for tomorrow is in the books. Just took it off.. A brined bird (my first brined) and smoked with sweet hickory pellets, followed up with smoked Kosher Salt and a variety of peppers: Jalapeno, Habanero, & Poblano.The peppers are on now at 110 and will go until they dehydrate. Then I am going to chop 'em up an mix with the salt... Will see how they come out..
Here is my handi-work for tomorrows Throwdown here in New Braunfels Tx.
13lb bird - 250 for 6hrs - stuffed with apples and onions, a little "Slap yo momma" seasoning" mixed with butter injected under the skin in all the right places.
Hog tied so it doesn't fly off
Probes in place
A Humble beginning..
It didn't get away...yummmy...
At rest, and catching some zzzz's
Ready to wrap for the night !
Moving on to the Salt n Peppers......
Cut in half, deveined, de seeded, and soaked in ice water for a couple of hours. Poblano, Habanero, Jalapenos...
Ready to Rock-n roll
Laid to Rest for the night at about 105* with some hickory pellets.
I hope they come out ok, I expect 24 hrs to dry completely. I hope I don't screw them up. Going to up date this again late tomorrow if they are not incinerated,...Ok all Smokemeisters ....comments please. Im going to bed now.
